Old & New Cooper River Bridges, Charleston, South Carolina
From the archives (May 2005), the old and new Cooper River Bridges in Charleston, South Carolina. Pictured on the left, one of two older bridges that are were demolished and replaced by the new Cable-Stayed Bridge on the right, named the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge (aka New Cooper River Bridge).
This view from the "Emergency Lane" of the oldest Cooper River Bridges built in 1929, aka Grace Memorial Bridge.
The new bridge on the right officially opened on July 16, 2005, two months after this photo was taken.
